Etiquette, Eating & Excursions Abroad 02/27/18

Coming into CIMBA and studying abroad I would not have considered myself a very polite eater at dinner. However, things changed when all of us had the opportunity to attend an Etiquette seminar hosted by Dr. Al Ringleb. Here, we learned all the must-knows for European dining, such as silverware placement, allowing the host to […]

A Surreal Experience 06/08/15

Guten tag! Green grass billows slightly in the wind. Evergreen trees stand tall covering hills and mountains. Peaks of mountains gleam white from above. Blue skies in every direction with a few stretched out cotton balls as clouds. Colorful houses sprinkle the ground. Mother Earth appears so natural, raw, and beautiful. It’s relatively untouched with […]

While I have been privileged to see a portion of Europe during my stay, I had yet to venture east and experience […]

Hop on Hop off 11/05/14

Add a Seat was definitely one of my favorite experiences. McKenzie and I were grouped together to eat dinner with an Italian student and their family. We really didn’t know what to anticipate, other than wonderful food. As the entire “Add a Seat” group walked outside we discussed our hopes of what this dinner would […]

Oktoberfest, Ein Prosit (I Salute You) 10/29/14

The most magnificent mountain faces consumed the sky as it turned to a ripe shade of peach. Some mountains nursed little towns at their feet that appeared as flickering moats of streetlights and red roof tiles. These mountains led our bus through northern Italy and into Germany; we were on our way to Oktoberfest. For most […]

Oktoberfest — the learning experience. 10/22/14

Prior to coming to CIMBA, we were told not to plan any traveling in advance to avoid costly travel changes and the fear of missing out. Although this was frustrating, I knew it was all for good reasoning and I did follow the advice… except for Oktoberfest. I made up my mind that I would be […]

Oktoberfest Culture 10/07/13

There is no feeling quite like crossing out a line on my bucket list. It means the days of letting my mind wander are done, and there’s no need to google any more pictures. It happened, and I must say Oktoberfest was much more than I could have ever imagined. My bucket list consists mainly […]
